Even though the weather has not been hospitable the past two days here me and a buddy and member here decided to do some LR pd'ing with specialty pistols. LR cartridges were 6mm-6.5x47 Lapua rear grip XP and my center-grip 7mm Dakota. Quite a few near misses @ 1400-1600 yards with both and I was fortunate enough to connect on a dog @ 1454 yards. Ranging was done with a military rangefinder (Wild) and then reconfirmed with GPS.
We were shooting off of a Hart portable bench using Harris BR bi-pods.
When I set up for distances @ 2k out to 2200 yards we couldn't see hits even with his Leica spotting scope. Grass was to high combined muddy conditions. It was a good way to start the doggin season though. Temps were in the 30's with the wind running around 12 mph when I nailed the dog.
Good start to the doggin season.
Anyone else been doing any doggin this year?
